Gear followed the musher as he called the dogs to follow. They'd need to get suited up before the actual run. The dogs remained in their lines until they got to the barn. It was just a huge room where all the equipment was stored. There were two handlers waiting for them and they went down the lines placing the dogs in harnesses. After a few shakes each dog was ready to go. The musher finished adjusting the sled then called up each dog in order. He clipped their harnesses to the tug line and rewarded them with a small piece of cheese.



As each dog was securely fastened to the tug line they began barking and the barn became an echoing box of noise. Mellie joined in the barking due to pure excitement. This would be her first day running with some of the newer dogs and she was quite excited. She yipped over to Gear "Ready when you are!" he knew that the musher would be the first to give orders but only to Gear and Ryi. Then they'd pass the orders to the other dogs.

Loki stood with his tail making circles on the ground, his posture relaxed as they were harnessed. However, he couldn't help releasing a little bark of excitement as the other dogs created a racket. He looked over at Eski and grinned, nudging her with his nose over the line.

Domino bounced up and down in her harness, barking loudly. She was ready to run, the energy surging through her body already as she tried to wait calmly, but failed. She shook her head, the ruff of fur around her neck flying everywhere.

Julio would be fastened to his space in the long line him being a rather big dog he took his job seriously. Big in size and muscle he prepared for the short course as the usual runs were, he would shake lightly looking to the female next to him he nodded and gave a sort of canine smirk then would wait for the pulling to begin.

I felt the nudge on my shoulder as I was being clipped in, and turned to return the gesture enthusiastically. A grin seeped over my ebony lips, and my tail was swishing gently. I couldn't wait to run. To leap forward into the snow and keep going, breath heavy in my throat and muscles clenching and loosening. I yipped excitedly, but not loud enough to carry to the musher's ears.

Gear barked to the musher. He was jumping and pulling on the tug line. It was secured to the floor and already connected to the sled so all the musher would ave to do is unclip from the floor. He whined and barked and barked and whined. It was amazing how much he acted like a puppy when he was in the harness.

Akila stood stiffly as she was being clipped in, and kept her head down and her ears pressed flat against her head. She wasn't scared, but instead was nervous being around a bunch of new dogs. Aki wasn't really sure what she should do. Part of her wanted to bark in excitement along with the others, while the other part wanted desperately to be back in her kennel, curled up and away from all the noise.

I was desperate to start running, but I was also watching the new dog carefully. I guessed we would not be doing anything serious today as the musher would probably want to break us in as a team. I smiled at her.

Loki grinned at Eski before following her gaze to the new dog. "Hello!" he barked at her, wagging his tail and smiling.

Domino bounced in her harness, smiling at the new dog by her. She resisted the urge to leap on her in greeting, mostly because it would be a hard feat to accomplish at the moment. Instead, she occupied herself with wagging her tail as fast as possible.

Aki kept her gaze on the ground in front of her, but wagged her tail in a shy greeting. After several moments she plucked up the courage to look at the dogs around her. They all seemed really nice, but she was still unsure what to expect. She glanced over at the dog who was wagging her tail quite ferociously and smiled. "Hello there. I'm Akila... You can call me Aki though"

Domino's grin widened as Akila introdouced herself. "I'm Domino, but you can call me Do," she yipped, slowing down but still bouncing on her paws.

"Hello, I am Loki," Loki called from his spot farther up the line. He smiled reassuringly at her before turning to face the front again, his tail hanging calmly by his legs.

"I'm Eski. Nice to meet you. How'd you end up in this godforsaken blizzard?" I laughed, wagging my tail and sitting down as I waited for the musher to begin.

Aki lifted her head slightly and looked at Do, Loki, and Eski. "It's nice to meet you all." She said. She smiled at her new friends. She was happy that there were so many nice dogs here.
